High resolution 6-inch/12-inch aerial imagery are now available from TNRIS for three areas of interest commissioned by Texas Parks & Wildlife:
Texas Parks and Wildlife contributed funds to collect the new imagery as part of the 2015 Statewide Orthoimagery Project BUY-UP option to increase pixel resolution beyond 0.5-meter.
Surdex Corp. was selected under the High Priority Imagery and Data Sets (HPIDS) state contract as the orthoimagery data provider. The TNRIS Strategic Mapping Program (StratMap) administered the project providing coordination and project management services. TNRIS also performed QA/QC for the project which included inspection of interim and final orthoimagery products.
The new orthoimagery are used by Texas Parks and Wildlife for park planning and development, general mapping, and other applications.
The new orthoimagery were acquired in 2015 on April 25 over Hueco Tanks, October 28 over Powderhorn Ranch, and November 19 over Bastrop/Hidden Pines during leaf-on conditions.
The orthoimagery files (GeoTIFF, JPEG2000) are in the public domain. The JPEG2000s are available for direct download.
